I haven't had beets in a really long time, so I wasn't sure if I'd like them. I decided to try them with a very simple, minimal preparation. I steamed them until soft, and ate them with a bit of butter, salt and pepper. They were tasty. I couldn't get over how they tasted like corn, but with a completely different texture. Why would a grain and a root vegetable taste so similar? Oh, and who is not impressed by their brilliant colors!

If you don't mind firing up your oven, you can roast beets with herbs and there V good.

However, my favorite? Lipstick roll (sushi). I use the fine grater to make a pile of beets. I rinse them with rice vinegar, squeeze them dry, add a little pinch of sugar and salt and roll the whole wad into the middle of a sushi roll! It stains the rice, making the color bleed out a bit. I don't quite know why they're called lipstick roll.
